The servlet API is not part of Java SDK. Download Tomcat.

Which application server are you using?

Actually many of the J2EE specific libraries comes with the application server . You just need to place those in your classpath in order to compile your servlet. You can also download the J2EE libraries from sun site.

In your case you would definitely need servlet-api.jar or more to get your servlet compiled.

I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
